The Golden Duo

I've spoken before of my love for the Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint, so when I read about the Matte version, I was curious to try it out. I prefer more dewy, glowing finishes from my bases, so I usually wouldn't go near anything with "matte" in the title. However, I had read in previous reviews that the Matte Moisture Tint had more of a velvet-y finish that really let your natural skin shine through, and I figured if I combined it with the Luminizing Moisture Tint it could be a great pair.
When I first tried out the Matte Moisture Tint (in the shade Linen, which is my perfect match) I immediately noticed how similar the consistency was to the amazing Laura Mercier Silk Creme Foundation. While they both have a whipped, airy texture, the Matte Moisture Tint has much more of a light-to-medium coverage compared to the very full coverage of the Laura Mercier offering.
Like the Silk Creme Foundation, the Matte Moisture Tint definitely does have a soft, skin-like finish that's not too matte nor too shiny. Even for a dewy-loving girl like me I think I could see myself wearing this alone. I could definitely see myself wearing just this during the summer when my skin has some added hydration, and when the Oil-Free formula would be a great fit. However, as much as I do enjoy wearing this alone as a base, my love for it grows exponentially when I add a few drops of the Luminizing Moisture Tint in Pearl.
These two offerings completely balance each other out! Alone, the Luminizing Moisture Tint is a bit too shiny for me, and right now the Matte Moisture Tint doesn't have enough shine for me. Added together, these two are a match made in heaven, and form my little "golden duo". They add just the right amount of coverage to my face while still allowing my natural skin to show through. I couldn't ask for more from these two gems, and I imagine they both will be getting a lot of use year round from me.
